"AN AFFAIR TO REMEMBER" combines the acting of two of H1
wood's biggest and best paid stars with Cinemascope, color,
a theme of romance.
These elements are brought together by Director Leo McC
whose stock in trade is the sentimental movie. The plot is not new;
rather, commonplace.
Cary Grant, complete with his Spanish suntan, is a playboy
is about to guarantee the end to his financial worries via a m
million dollar marriage.
Miss Kerr appears as a woman whose own future is abou

1 a restricted and perhaps
f view. Bias cannot be eradi-

cated when an administrative entity under-
takes its own education.
Union philosophy is still far from being rec-
onciled with management's, even under the
leadership of such able men as Reuther and
John L. Lewis, who have done much to make
unionism palatable.
The' impasse remains even after the social
acceptance of unionism was underscored by
the polite exchange of letters betwen Reuther,
the automotive heads, ,and President Eisen-
hower. The skirmish of letters did not resolve
the problem of whether wages beget prices
or conversely. No separate agency, it seems,
cares to develop a solution.
Reuther suggests that institutions of higher
learning are neglecting a service to the la-
bor movement--a movement now soundly es-
tablished in our economic structure. It should
become the interest and responsibility of lead-
ing universities, particularly those serving
areas of vast labor populations, to include a
definable? curriculum in "Labor Administra-
An adequate program, on the model of the
University's Hospital Administration offering,
might serve at least to stimulate ehtical prac-
ices. 'Adequate' in this sense would mean a
program receiving support and assistance from,
unions, much as industrial groups now bolster
business administration courses.
Historically, labor leaders rose through the
ranks. Some of the consequences of this tra-
dition (through lack of alternative, perhaps)
are now convulsing the labor movements, and
are leaving their stains on our society.
Universities, through their educational influ-"
ences, should therefore take the initiative in
,bringing about wholesomeness in labor, and an
awareness of its economic responsibilities. A
minimum program should include the training
of union-sponsored students.
In his reply to Reuther's letter touching on
aspects of inflation, Henry Ford II spoke -of the
need for "labor statesmanship"-a field which
might well be included in public instruction.'
Certainly in an era of inflation and bald-
faced union corruption, something can and
should be done towards mature and genuine
labor statesmanship.

ested, Miss Kerr is merely amused.
But being a resourceful playboy,
Mr. Grant resorts to the tried and
true device of taking the girl to
meet "grand mama." From there
on it is all downhill. Love, pro-
mises and complications ensue in
that order.
When the principals are on
camera, the dialogue tends to be
whimsical and occasionally spiced
with the kind of remarkts that
sharp guys like to make mental
notes of for future usd.
Unlike most of the recent Cine-
mascope offerings "Affair" does
not go out of its way to treat the
viewer to large splashes of scenery.
Rather, the rose-colored lens sees
heavy fluty. There are a few shots
of New York, however, which are
bound to make refugees from the
City nostalgic.

be greeted by 'an imitation of

you and inform you of the running

is a great improvement over the

Air Command until it can be replaced with mis-
siles, the Air Force will deactivate tactical
wings rather than strategic wings.
In the event of an attack, SAC would deliver
the United States retaliatory blows. However,
the tactical air wings provide ground troops
with air support. If troops were to go into bat--
tle, a weakened Tactical Air Comand might
find itself unable to provide soldiers -on the
ground enough support.
The Army will have lost four of 19 divisions
they had at beginning of the year. The De-
fense Department has said overseas bases will
be maintained, and cuts will come mostly
from forces in rthe United States.
THESE DIVISIONS are in the United States
for training and to serve as reserve units.
Overseas forces are to'defend and retaliate in
event of attack on our allies or ourselves. How-
ever, a prolonged offensive would require addi-
tional troops from the United States. In an
atomic war, the few months necessary to re-ac-
tivate units could be fatal.
The armed forces receive 60 per cent of the
budget now, If the military can be reduced, it
should be reduced.
The President and Wilson have both ap-
proved this cut. If they are wrong, or if their
hands have been forced by budget cuts, the
United States has been placed in a more dan-
gerous position.

East-You would hardly expect
to find a man who spent most of
his life running a department
store in Kansas City traveling
through the small towns of Turkey,
trying to reconstruct the Turkish
economy, but that is what Louis"
Rothschild, now Undersecretary of
Commerce, has been doing for the
past month.
Along with a group of other
American businessmen, Rothschild
has been sleeping in ancient hotels,
traveling over dusty roads and
spending long hours with Turkish
'businessmen and officials.
Turkey is a country which badly
needs his advice. If it weren't for
American aid, its economy would
collapse overnight. American aid
has been paying for all its oil, all
its military upkeep, most of its
wheat and other essentials.,

TODAY Turkey is so hard up
that you can't get a cup of, im-
ported coffee 'anyplace in the na-

mitted. It eats up the foreign ex-

of tires. As a result, you see trucks
,on the highways, propped up on
jacks, while the driver has walked
or hitch-hiked to the next town
to patch his inner tube. He can't.
get a spare tire.

child for a solution, he told them:

the Turkish economy. It will take
a lot of different things. One of
the first things you should develop
is coal. You have plenty of coal,
but you don't mine it because your
laws restrict private enterprise.
Coal is a government monopoly.
Let ,businessmen mine your coal,
and you can develop some excel-

lent markets around the Mediter-
"I've also noticed these embroid-=
ered slippers worn by the Turkish
women," Rothschild advised. "If
you manufactured them for export
-you'd find that a lot of American
women would'love to buy them.
"Then I've noticed that you
raise some fine peaches and make
peach juice," suggested Roths-
child. "I've never tasted peach'
juice. before. Why don't you de-
velop it and export it? You might
find just as'profitable a market
as our cola drinks."
' Rothschild"is confident Turkey-
will begin pulling up its economy.

cans who accompanied him.

JOHN L. LEWIS, the Mine
Workers chief, came through
Greece with the Fairless mission,
studying American aid. He made a
hit. Greeks didn't find his bushy
eyebrows as forboding as the ad-
vance billing and they got a
chuckle out of his courtly Eliza-
bethan English.
At one private party, Queen
Frederika challenged him.
"Mr. Lewis," she said, "during
the guerilla fighting, orphaned,
children were being picked up lit-
erally on the side of the road.
We had to find homes for them
and organize orphanages. To pay,
for those orphanages, the work-
men of Greece worked an extra
day and donated all their pay.
Would your union do that in the
United States?"
"Your; Majesty," replied Lewis,

Greece, "For you the United Mine

I told'him I wasn't built to be a

"WHEN I first took this job,"
continued Grismer, "I was dead

"American farm surpluses, con-

what have helped meet the Greek

much the cut will be as a result of

low, the new weapons we're send-
